We cordially invite you to submit a paper to the upcoming 2012 5th International Conference on BioMedical Engineering and Informatics (BMEI 2012) and 2012 5th International Congress on Image and Signal Processing (CISP 2012), to be jointly held from 16-18 October 2012, in Chongqing, China. BMEI'12-CISP'12 is a premier international forum for scientists and researchers to present the state of the art of multimedia, signal processing, biomedical engineering and informatics. BMEI¹12-CISP¹12 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.
As with past BMEI-CISP conferences, all papers in conference proceedings will be indexed by both EI Compendex and ISTP, as well as included in the IEEE Xplore (IEEE Conference Record Number for CISP'12: 20190; IEEE Conference Record Number for BMEI'12: 20189). Substantially extended versions of best papers will be considered for publication in a CISP'12-BMEI'12 special issues of the Multimedia Tools and Applications and China Communications journals (both SCI-indexed).
Renowned as the Mountain City, Chongqing is a magnet for visitors from home and abroad for its cultural heritage and numerous attractions. There are many karst caves, hot springs, and gorges in the area. Major tourist spots in and near Chongqing include Dazu Grottoes (rock carvings began in the Tang Dynasty 650 A.D.), Three Gorges, Jinyun Mountain Natural Reserve, Hongya Cave, Shibaozhai, Wulong Karst, etc.. The registration fee of US$430 includes proceedings, lunches, dinners, banquet, coffee breaks, and all technical sessions.
To promote international participation of researchers from outside the country/region where the conference is held (i.e., China's mainland), researchers outside of China's mainland are encouraged to propose invited sessions. The first author of each paper in an invited session must not be affiliated with an organization in China's mainland. All papers in the invited sessions can be marked as "Invited Paper". The organizer(s) for each invited session with at least 6 registered papers will (jointly) enjoy an honorarium of US*D 400. Invited session organizers will solicit submissions, conduct reviews and recommend accept/reject decisions on the submitted papers. Invited session organizers will be able to set their own submission and review schedules, as long as a list of recommended papers is determined by 10 August 2012. Each invited session proposal should include: (1) the name, bio, and contact information of each organizer of the invited session; (2) the title and a short synopsis of the invited session. Please send your proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org For more information, visit the conference web page:
